12 Reasons I'd Rather Stay In On A Saturday Night Than Interact With Other Humans

Okay, maybe this applies to most nights of the week...

12 Reasons I'd Rather Stay In On A Saturday Night Than Interact With Other Humans

We all know the feeling of guilt you get when you just do not want to go out on a Saturday night, but you're torn with the feeling that you're not a normal teen/young adult. I'm here to give you the most compelling reasons to stay in this weekend, and not feel bad about it.

1. You don't have to wear a bra.


Honestly, I could just stop the list here because this is arguably the best thing about staying in.

2. The food at home is FREE.


Your bank account has been BEGGING you not to spend any more money on food when you literally just went grocery shopping. Listen to it. The bank doesn't play.

3. You don't have to wear pants.


No more button marks on your muffin top! No more cramping after your daily Chick-Fil-A feast! FREEDOM IS RINGING. Let the bell toll, people. Let the bell toll.

4. There are no forced interactions with anyone when you're alone in your bedroom!


Listen Becca, I KNOW your sorority's philanthropy. I don't want to hear about it again. Ever.

5. You can sit still for an obscene amount of time and no one can stop you.


Pro tip: Grab all of your snacks before you lay down, so you can maximize your time of being a vegetable.

6. You don't have to do your hair and makeup—saving you over an hour of time.


Your messy bun is about to shine as bright as your computer screen.

7. You don't have to worry about running into someone you would pay to avoid.


Remember that guy you promised you'd give your phone number to last weekend? Yeah, lets avoid him at all costs.

8. You won't get drunk and regret it.


You might get wine drunk, but just enough to make everything you're watching 10x funnier and to make you sleep like a baby.

9. You don't have any obligation to take care of drunk friends!


You just get to worry about yourself. What a foreign concept!

10. Finally, some intimate, one-on-one time with your dog, a.k.a. your truest friend.


Give that good boy/girl the love that they DESERVE.



Independent films, mysteries, horror films, foreign films, oh my!!!!

12. There's no need to pretend to be having fun—you actually will be.


The only person you need to worry about is you. You don't have to ask anyone's opinion on what they want to watch or consult anyone on what to have for dinner. Everything is up to you, my friend.

Basically, you don't need to feel guilty for staying in on a Saturday night! You are totally entitled to some healthy alone time and don't owe anybody an explanation of your actions. So, take my advice and experience some of these incredible things for yourself this Saturday night—I promise that you won't regret it.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
